I'm not arguing against that - we absolutely should have an AppDB and a
bugzilla link in the corner.  They're very useful.

I'm just saying such a link doesn't have to also be among the large,
friendly buttons at the left, which is where a complete newcomer's eyes
are drawn.  A newcomer who doesn't know what they're looking for, and
thus probably doesn't want AppDB or Bugzilla yet (but does probably want
About, Download, or Support)
